John Morris was born in Dublin in 1958. He lives in Abbeyfeal in Limerick, with his wife and three children. He has been painting since the late 1990s. He is largely self taught, having met and learned from the artist Brian Quinn after meeting him painting ‘en plein air’ in 1997.
John’s paintings are spontaneous, centred in the moment and all about the play of light on people and objects and above all water, resulting in paintings that sparkle with a seemingly inner luminance and allow the spirit of the observer to soar. He is represented by prestigious galleries around the country.
